Dear Members and friends of St. Peter's Anglican Church,
The peace of the Lord be always with you.
THE POWER OF PRAYER.
Have you ever experienced the power of prayer?
Prayer makes people live in peace and godly lives.
In 1 Timothy 2:1-4 we read
1." I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers,
intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people
— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may
live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior,
4 who wants all people to be saved and
to come to a knowledge of the truth."
God forgives and heals his people through prayer:
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves
and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then
I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
(2 Chronicles 7:14)..
God is waiting for the prayer of his people:
15 Now my eyes will be open and my ears
attentive to the prayers offered in this place.
May God help us to pray peace and godly life both in our families
and the world at large.
In Jesus Christ our Lord.
Fr. James Kibe Karanja.
